Trump is trying to replace the Obamacare, Still in Progress

Emergency Responder

He wrote that if Republican Senators failed to explain what they are working on, he would REPEAL and REPLACE them with the later date.

In his first Sunday news-show appearance, Marc Short, the White House legislative affairs director, noted that 49 senators had voted in the past for repealing Obamacare with the intention of passing a replacement later, something President Donald Trump suggested in a Twitter posting last week.

Republican negotiations over how to overhaul the Affordable Care Act centered sharply Thursday on a divisive and ideological question: How much money should the Senate health-care bill spend on protecting vulnerable Americans, and how much on providing tax relief to the wealthy?

He also indicated that it is not easy to make Americans great again.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) speaks about the election of Donald Trump in the US presidential election in Washington, Nov. 9, 2016.

Trump's suggestion had the potential to harden divisions within the GOP as conservatives complain that McConnell's bill does not go far enough in repealing Obama's health care law while moderates criticize it as overly harsh in kicking people off insurance rolls, shrinking the Medicaid safety net and increasing premiums for older Americans.

There was mixed response to Trump's suggestion.

Rodney Whitlock is the experienced health policy expert.

Ohio Governor John Kasich, a former Republican presidential candidate, said on ABC's "This Week" that repealing Obamacare without a replacement won't work because "you can't leave people without what they need".

But Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), one of the main conservative critics of the bill as now written, suggested on the same show the legislation should be junked and process of writing it begun anew.

Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky said getting repeal and replace bills close together in time would be key for centrist members of his party.

Moderates were spooked as the week began with a Congressional Budget Office finding that McConnell's draft bill would result in 22 million people losing insurance over the next decade, only 1 million fewer than under the House-passed legislation which Trump privately told senators was "mean". He has previously said if Republicans don't reach agreement, he will have to turn to Democrats, who want to fix Obama's health care law without repealing it. Finally, Republicans rejected the Trump idea of repealing the Obamacare.

Sanders says the White House is focused on the "end product" which she says is repealing and replacing the health care law.
